A tale of two lost souls in Petite France.

Petite France was originally not a part of our plan, someone just told us to “drop by” Petite France after exploring Nami Island, as it is “nearby”. Yes we did “dropped by” however, we are quite appalled how “near” it was from Nami Island. 😛

Okay, let me articulate how “near” Petite France is from Nami Island. After our heart-calming-soul-healing escapade in Namiseom, it was about to get dark so instead of taking the shuttle bus we hailed a cab instead. “Ajussi, Peti Purangsu euro ga juseyo” we told the driver and off we go. On the first three to five minutes of the ride we were still fascinated by the surrounding mountains we were seeing along the way, then five minutes turns to ten, ten to twenty then my sister started to get restless, I’ve asked the driver if we still have long way to go, he just nodded. Anxiety attacks as our wifi egg has already ran out of battery, my sister and I were exchanging glances that say, “Are we getting kidnapped? Are we going to die? I haven’t found my Oppa yet!” (yep, we were that extreme,LOL!) We forced ourselves to calm down and with my limited Hangul reading skills we were able to find road signs that say 쁘띠프랑스, relieved, after the most uncomfortable 25 mins taxi ride of our lives we’ve reached our destination looking 45 years older and 37,000 won poorer. LOL!!!

Petite France is a French cultural village set in the Korean countryside inspired by the French novel Le Petit Prince. It is mostly known as a filming location for Korean dramas i.e. ‘Beethoven Virus’, ‘Secret Garden’, ‘My Love from the Star’ and our much-loved Korean variety show ‘Running Man’. Admission Fee: 8,000 won.

Together with the gracious mother and son duo that we’ve met in the cab station, we carpooled our way back to Gapyeong Station. This sums up our full day of shenanigans 63 km away from Seoul.

Jusqu’à la prochaine fois, 다음 시간까지, till next time. 🙂

All photos were taken by me and my sister Feb using our iPhone 7 and Canon EOS 1000D.
